I appreciate the efforts the restaurant has put into their Covid-19 protocols. All staff were friendly and the service was great. I was a bit put off when I asked for a bit more chocolate sauce on my desert Sunday (as there was not much to start) and was charged extra for that. But that is a very petty complaint and not important to me. I and my wife will continue to use the Station Square Earls as our go to restaurant.

I book 2 weeks in advance, what do I get. A seat out in the patio ok fine but the heat doesn’t work. The waitress said “it shouldn’t be to cold tonight”.
Horrible service. The bread was not toasted.

First of all, we reserved a table outside. However, we were told that there is a group of people who have been having a party by our table and they can’t just ask them to leave. So our option was to either eat inside or wait until they leave. We decided to go with sitting inside. Then, our food was served cold and the music inside was extremely loud.

Good was great, distancing and cleaning protocols were easy and evident, and server was awesome. He (wish I knew his name) flagged previous customer feedback on menu items, had suggested alternatives where needed and was very personable. Lots of followup and was never waiting. Also expressed appreciation for our patronage and the manager came by and was lovely as well.

I normally do not submit a review right after dining, but Earls Station Square outdid themselves in treating our two tables of 4 very well. We dined at 5:00 pm via reservations with Open Table and had a great time with catching up with friends. Timing of drinks and food was perfect during our conversations. Topped off with the NYC cheesecake that was recommended by Ivica, our Server. Then the extra topping for this wonderful evening was when Janeya, the Floor Manager, picked up the tab for one of our tables.

We will definitely be back, not because of the paid tab of one our tables, but how we were treated like VIPs.

Excellent Job during these trying times. I had an issue with my Calamari being cold when it came to the table and the waitress took care of it right away and replaced it with a hot dish and comp'd it from our bill...very good customer service!

Easily one of the best places to grab a bit in the Metrotown area. We're sort of regulars, so maybe we're biased. Having said that, yet to have a bad experience there. Top-notch!

I love this location. The set up is amazing. It just looks so gorgeous. My friend and I had a table in the out door seating area. It didn’t feel overly hot which was kind of nice so we could still enjoy the nice weather and the good food. I wish I had gotten the name of the girl who was helping us but she was amazing. Very knowledgeable and friendly. She often checked on us to make sure we were okay or I’d we wanted anything else. She even suggested a drink honestly tasted so amazing.

I called at 2pm to make a same day reservation. The person on the phone said she can’t take a same day reservation. I asked when did this happen, she replied since opening. I know this is not true as I’ve been making reservations day of and I come at least once a week since this location has opened. I then went online and made a reservation for the same day at 3:15. We got there early and was seated and ordered by 3:05. I had a beer and finished it, still no food. At 3:40 I flagged our server and asked for another beer, inquired about the food and she said oh it’s coming, I’ll go check. What did you order again? Do you have an allergies? Then after we repeated the gyoza and calamari, she went to the machine and I watched her enter the orders! For sure she forgot! No apologies, explanations whatsoever. 7 mins she brought the gyozas. At 3:50 I asked about the calamari and she said she will check. I told her that this is ridiculous, we’ve been there for almost an hour and I had to go and I can’t wait. Just overall a very bad experience and she said she’s sorry but the machine has been acting up all day which I don’t believe. She didn’t even come check on us for 30 mins and we flagged her down as we watched everyone around us that came after get their food and had drinks and my mother didn’t even get a refill. Her excuse was the coffee was brewing. I just feel every time i come it’s getting worse.

Even if you reserve a patio table, it’d not guaranteed because they’ll let walk ins stay and don’t have the guts to tell them there’s a time limit on their table. Why even put that as an option if you can’t guarantee it?

Food is decently prepared, nothing spectacular by any means. Typical casual dining chain. Best value and quality are their drinks. Service is passable at best. Servers are unattentive and lack any sense of urgency. We waited almost 15 minutes to receive our check to pay.

It is commendable that Earls Kitchen Station Square follows covid-19 protocols. Their cooks and servers all wear mask and the tables are made available for social distancing.
The food is the usual comfort food quality that you can expect from restaurants like Cactus Club, Browns or Milestone.

Was surprised though that the happy hour was moved earlier to 2-5pm from 3-6pm, so if you get off work (from home) at 5pm, then you won't make it.

This branch has a patio seating area which is great for summer time. Parking is free in the building. This location is very accessible and the restaurant looks very clean.

During peak time, this specific location does not do social distancing.
We were seated at the patio and did not meet our server for at least 15 minutes. The server did not check up on us and had to keep asking other hosts/servers for our server.

Was hoping to be seated on the patio but was seated inside right next to open windows so that was fine. Food was good, I had the tofu bowl which was magnificent! Our server was only ok, abit awkward and rarely checked up on us but not terrible.
